21 Day Fix Meal Planning


So you purchased 21 Day Fix and you are asking yourself WHAT in the world did I get myself into?  These containers look small!  I need to plan what I am eating for the week?  DON'T GIVE UP BEFORE YOU START!

STOP!!!  DON'T PANIC -  EMBRANCE CHANGE!

I have provided some meal plans below for the first two calorie brackets. 
 If you are in need of a different calorie bracket please reach out to me via email
 I would LOVE to help you!


Tip #1 - Know Your Foods!
STICK to this list for the first 21 days. You can also find this list in the booklet that came with your program. If it's not on the list don't eat it.  If you want to maximize your results this is the best practice.  After your 21 days you can start working on ways to incorporate some other foods you would like in your meal plan.  Keep a copy of this on you so when you stop to do grocery shopping you can pull it out!



Tip #2 - Use the APP!
In your smartphone look up 21 Day Fix Tracker.  There is one that Beachbody has created and it is GREAT for tracking your foods on the go.  It isn't a meal planner but it can help you with sticking to your meal plan if you like to log your meals and check them off!




Tip #3 - Keep it SIMPLE!
We all try to over complicate the meal planning when we first start it.  Start simple with foods you enjoy.  If you are someone who enjoys salads for lunch keep it that way!  Just make sure your getting in all your containers for the day.  Duplicate your meals.  You will notice in the meal plans below what I had for dinner one night is usually lunch the next day.  
Focus on adding in 1-2 new recipes your first week.  There is no reason to plan a new recipe every single day.  Make recipes that your entire family will enjoy.  Remember this isn't that hard it's just NEW to you.  SO PLEASE always ask questions! You can reach out to me anytime for questions! I would love to help.



Tip #4 - Drink Your Shakeology Daily
Not only will you feel energized but you will be able to stay on track.  Shakeology has changed me in so many ways.  You can read my story here

Craving Crusher - Helps me avoid chocolate candy bars!
Keeps Me Full - My breakfast choice everyday!
Easy For on The go - Just add milk/water, shake and go!

If you haven't tried Shakeology yet.  It's a GAME CHANGER.  It was for me.  I started out with T25 (no shakeology) and I did not get the results I was looking for until I had the winning combination.  Which is exactly what a challenge pack is - Challenge Group, Workout program and Shakeology!  That is when I lost more weight, when I lowered my cholesterol and didn't need medication.  It is when I GOT those results that I had long desired for!



Tip #5 - Meal Prep
Take a day to cook your meals ahead of time.  I don't like to make my meat for more then 2 days at a time or it dries out.  However you can make tons of vegetables and portion them out.  I also love to cut my veggies up and portion them out in color coded baggies.  You can find those color coded baggies in most grocery stores and at Target.  They are a life safer!  Remember if you are busy you will want to grab and go so taking the time now will prevent you from that McDonald's drive through! Failing to plan is planning to fail!
